Best bump stop?

Alright, let me set the stage first, I have a 2011 jk with a RK 2.5 with both lower CAs and fox adjustable reservior shocks on the way. I am missing bumpstops

Now I understand there are normal bumpstops and then air bumps, speed bumps, all those fancy ones.

Is there a difference between say the sky jacker bump stop and the Teraflex ones? They seem to basically be rubber pucks and for the price difference is there a big jump in quality?

And as a bonus what are the perks of speed bumps or air bumps? Thanks!

No.. Unless you're comparing uppers/lowers. I prefer lowers in the front. Matter of fact .. I'm almost done drilling 6 hockey pucks for my front.

Some air bumps are just foam like TF's/MC's. True hydro bumps act like a shock. I'm not sure of the specifics.

So brand wise what would you recommend for each if you don't mind,
First: just normal bumps
Second: air (foam bumps)
Third: true hydro bumps

Thanks again!

For normal use .. Reg old solid stops is all you need.
Hydro/foam stops are for fast speed to absorb the hard bottoming out during uptravel.
You would be running a res shock along with them.

TF/fox and Daystar make canister style foam stops. Not sure where MC's sumo stops come in.

King is the only adjustable air/nitrogen bump I know off

What are you trying to do ?

My suspension is being set up for pre running. I have the RK 2.5 with front lower and rear lower. This should be good with their triple rate coils and great control arms. Then I have fox reservior that have the dial adjuster. Bump stops are my last step in the process so I don't want them to limit the things my suspension can do. So from what your saying I should go with either foam or king? I'm trying to do this all right the FIRST time

The Teraflex prerunner and Mopar kits use the Fox/TF stops ... Run them.
